"I was paralyzed," said Arzuma in Africa. "I am a 25-year-old invalid. I felt rejected by my family and the community. Today, I saw love in Christ. Jesus loves me. Through His sacrifice, I found hope. I give my life to my new friend Jesus. I ask you to pray for me to keep my faith. Thank you."
JESUS Film - Brazil
"The older people were receptive," said the team member in Brazil. "Their minds were open to the message of the JESUS
film. Many have become followers of Christ and are assured of their salvation."
JESUS Film - Jamica
"I gave my life to Jesus," said 9-year-old Candace in Jamica. "I was touched by the JESUS
film; it spoke a lot to me. I want to serve Jesus and follow Him all my life."
Days of rain have killed at least 70 people and displaced more than 200,000 other in Bangladesh. The deaths were mostly caused by landslides, wall collapses, lightning strikes, and surges of water. Hundreds of homes have been washed away and the rain is forecasted to continue.
Pray for the new ministry center being built in Kathmandu, Nepa and for churches in Barakothe, Chaugada, Girbas/Khadar, and Udayapur. Each of these congregations need worship halls. The Punaruthan Nazarene church needs land on which to build a church. They are meeting in a rented house and have outgrown it. Waldo Canyon Fire
